Bring together diverse interests to address rural health issues and advocates for and with rural Minnesotans.
MRHA strengthens the rural voice on health care issues through dialogue, education and advocacy, with a focus on enhancing the accessibility, affordability, and quality of healthcare in rural Minnesota.
The Minnesota Rural Health Association (MRHA) was created in 1994 with the help of the Minnesota Department of Health's Office of Rural Health, Minnesota Rural Partners and the Minnesota Center for Rural Health. The impetus for the creation of MRHA was a series of discussions and focus groups that identified the need for an organization that advocated for rural health issues.
MRHA is a membership organization that exists to help rural citizens, health care providers and organizations learn about how public policy issues may affect them and to teach them how to advocate for their interests. MRHA itself is truly a rural organization with board and staff who themselves live and work in rural communities.
